Guidance by Marian and her professional team through every step was spot on. She and Phil were very responsive to our expressed limitations and preferences while navigating the listing, negotiations and closing processes. They were outstanding in communicating with us no matter the issue, distance or time constraints.

Helped me buy and sell homes
Phil helped us find and purchase a new home which involved significant complexity. His expertise in negotiation helped us not only with the purchase process, but also in a process with the zoning board. Phil understands mechanicals and provided helpful information we used for determining whether to request inspections. Phil is patient and represented us well throughout the process. Marian helped us sell our home. Her training and experience in guiding the staging of our house was exquisite. The photos were so professionally done that a not-so active home shopper was convinced she needed to see this house. Her visit was 6 days after listing and by midnight she made an offer. Sold in less than a week! One can not help but love having Phil and Marian working with you. The combination of their skills and experience makes them an excellent team. Vast experience, numerous professional credentials, warm and positive personalities. We highly recommend them. - Jim and Donna Less ... More

Marian and Phil provided exceptional support, guidance, and help with our Estate Sale. We were in a situation where the property was in the final stages of renovation and we were anxious to place it on the market. In addition, we live one hour away, so it was critical that we had a realtor in place who could help us monitor the house and provide great communication. Marian presented their 5-step process to sell a home in a highly competitive environment. As a result of this process and their dedicated work, we sold a 100-year-old house in six days, during a very cold, snowy winter! Marian and Phil are a team that compliments one another; both are honest, up-front, and work with incredible professionalism and integrity. They have the experience needed to provide sound advice on what needs to be done to sell a property. We came to trust Marian and Phil 100%. We highly recommend their services. Less ... More

Marian and Phil helped us sell our home. They are a great team. They very directly helped us through the staging challenges we faced with our young family's child-focused home. They did all the coordination needed with the various staging/handymen needed to get our home in great shape...saving us tons of time. They did a great job finding buyers during a difficult time of year. We listed in October and closed in January, and we received offers from four different buyers. They did a great job taking us through the inspection process and provided lots of assistance recommending what actions to take and coordinating with the repair people...again saving us tons of time. Phil even took care of a couple issues at no charge. Overall, I would say they are fantastic both in their expertise and in their whatever-it-takes-to-get-it-done attitude. Less ... More

Marian and Phil worked with us over many years, keeping in touch without any pressure until we were finally ready to relocate closer to family. Phil showed us a number of places, and helped us act quickly when we finally found the right one. He was courteous, gave wise advice, and stayed on top of everything. We recommend Phil and Marian highly.

What a team! They were very knowledgeable of the area, of which, I was not. They were relentless and got my house sold in less than a month.. which was not an easy job. Thank you Phil and Marian for doing all you could to make this an enjoyable and painless experience. I would recommend you to anyone that needs to sell a house fast and with not a detail missed.

Knowledge, professionalism, and accessibility - they've got it all. We moved from out-of-state to PA and Phil helped us to buy a home that Marion had listed. Absolutely no conflict of interest - smooth transition - and we made a "happy move" to PA. Phil worked with us and around our work schedules to answer questions and provide all information needed. Highly recommend them!!

I recently enlisted the Marian Rutt Team to sell my property. They went over and above any other realtor to show my house in a way that attracted many prospective buyer. They scheduled 7 showing the first week and got me a full price offer in 5 days. I highly recommend the Marian Rutt Team to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Helped me buy home
We were purchasing our first home. My wife had been a realtor in New York for many years prior to our move to PA. She chose the Rutt Team of ReMax to be our Buyer's Agent. We were purchasing a foreclosed home owned by Freddie Mac. At every step of the way the Rutt's made sure we knew our options and recommended steps we could take. I had no idea of the various obstacles and challenges that faced a home purchaser (although my wife did). At several points along the way in the process it looked like the deal was going to fall through and every single time the Rutt's came to the plate and hit it out of the park. I now sit in my new home and am so grateful for all of the hard work, effort, and due diligence of Phil Rutt of the Rutt Team. I would recommend them 100%, without question or reservation, for any home seller or buyer. Less ... More

Marian and Phil Rutt put our place on the market the beginning of November. We appreciated the way the gave good recommendations and helped us stage our house to make it more sellable. Their knowledge and experience were invaluable. They gave prompt feedback after each showing and gave monthly reports on the progress. They checked in regularly regarding questions and additional information. Our place sold in just a bit more than two months in the midst of wintry weather! We highly recommend Marian and Phil and their work in selling real estate. Less ... More

Marian & Phil Rutt were agents to help us buy the same house ten years ago. They were heads and shoulders above all the other real estate agents we had used prior by 1. their extensive knowledge and experience in the real estate market and all RE related issues, from moving to staging to obtaining a mortgage to finding reputable tradesmen for working on the house. 2. their ability to use technology to keep us updated of market conditions as well as the # of views of our home's listing, from all different media, and the immediate response from potential buyers after each viewing. 3. their pro-active approach to hosting open houses, using youtube videos, and giving us recommendations to do what would most facilitate the sale of our house. 4. they were able to work with us even as we were out of the country at numerous times during the listing period and helped us keep the mail cleared and plants watered.

Previously, I had my home on the market with three different realtors, but no sale. I was very disappointed and almost gave up. A relative told me to call Marian and Phil Rutt at Re/Max. I was told that Marian and Phil are ?outstanding?. This was the best decision I ever made. I was impressed with their professionalism, expertise and organization. Marian staged my home and it was phenomenal. She devotes enormous energy into every aspect of the sale. The ?for sale? sign went up, the listing was posted and my home was sold in 12 days. I was absolutely thrilled! Thank you Marian and Phil for doing an ?awesome? job! Thank you for all your hard work and proven results. I know who I will be recommending?Marian and Phil Rutt at Re/Max!

This testimonial is to notify of the exceptional professional service, experience, and objective staging to prepare our house for placement on the real estate market by Marion Rutt and her team at ReMax. Our house sold quicker than we expected. The staging was impeccable with ideas for placement of our furniture to highlight the best features of the house to a wider audience. It is important to remember when placing your house on the market the homeowner needs to change perspective to the house is no longer their home. It is a commodity. We recommend this team to anyone selling or looking for real estate. Less ... More

I had my house on the market last summer and to my disappointment, it did not sell. I contacted Marian and Phil and they took the time to provide me with excellent input. After listing my house with Phil and Marian with Re/Max, it sold within fourteen days. Both Phil and Marian went out of their way to make it a priority and to make selling the house a successful venture. I was grateful for and appreciated the expertise they provided during the process. They kept their word and I could trust that they will do what they said they will. Marian kept me updated on all the activity that was taking place. I can recommend the Phil and Marian Team for selling real estate! Thank you, Phil and Marian! Less ... More

Thank you for all your help on both the buying & selling sides of our homes. We wouldn?t have been able to get through all of our interesting situations without your support and guidance. We are loving our new home and hope you stop by for a day of fishing. Thank you for your gifts, they are greatly appreciated!

Helped me buy and sell homes
When we found our dream home online, we were very excited, and needed to find a buyer?s agent quickly. We called our friends who had recently purchased a home, and they gave Phil a glowing recommendation. We hit it off right away. Phil?s knowledge and expertise helped us make an informed decision, and we walked away with our dream home at a great price! One of our biggest concerns, though, was selling our old house in today?s market. Phil mentioned that his wife was a seller?s agent who also specialized in staging. Since we were so impressed with Phil, we decided to give Marian a try. She was as kind and professional as Phil, and by the time she was finished helping to stage our house, we almost didn?t want to leave! The pictures she took looked great, and the website was extremely well done. Not only did we have over 15 pictures, we also had a virtual tour. Our goal was to sell our house in six months or less, and Phil and Marian helped us meet that goal. When we happily signed our sales contract, Phil came and helped make sure we were well prepared for the inspection. Marian continued to keep us informed about the legal progress of the sale, and handled our settlement for us since we were out of town. Selling a home, buying a home, and moving are all very stressful. We are so thankful we had Phil and Marian to help with the entire process. They are truly a great team!! Less ... More
